Re: Some thoughts on the Arp Odyssey

I agree with Goom - I rarely use the resonance slider on my MkIII Odyssey, especially live. It has so much character that I don't feel the need to add filter buzz. It is an awesome synth but you have to be able to drive it, it is a bit more of an "instrument" that your average monophonic synth, you...

Re: What are your favorite type of synth sounds?

Yeah. It's just that it all sounded very SNES like to me, as you mentioned yourself regarding one of the sounds. I'm convinced that with the right modulation these kind of sounds cold very well be used for things sounding far away from computer game music. I wish there was a synth based on that Son...

Re: What are your favorite type of synth sounds?

Cool stuff. You wouldn't by any chance happen to know what was used for these sounds? You never know with dubstep guys, a lot of the time it's not so much the synth itself as what you do outside of the synth. I could show you a wobble I built out of a single saw wave sample sometime for what I mean...

Re: What are your favorite type of synth sounds?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYNaXRgHdHo Basically everything in this, the SNES like leads, the pulsating bass and syrupy rubber lead synths. All top, top notch. The mix on this whole album sounds like it's actually exiting my speakers and making sweet love right to my brain stem. Cool stuff. You...

Re: New Elektron box

Edit: Apparently the 8-bit Sony SPC700 sound chip was used for the SNES sounds. Can't find any sound toys that used this chip as sound engine though, so to pull this halfway back on topic, the NEXT new elektron box should be something like a SNESstation or a SIDstation2. Using that sony chip. ADD c...

Re: New Elektron box

I like the SID sound so much I even tried to learn how to program the damn thing in C64 assembly code (with an emulator). Can't imagine how the SID musicians managed to CODE their entire songs back in the 80s. I get lost in frequency conversion tables and byte-sized envelopes and hex values. Yeah s...

Re: New Elektron box

I really really really wish I could find a SID station in Norway for less than $1000 :( It's one on finn.no right now in case you haven't noticed. Seems they don't show up all that often, but if you don't want one enough to just pay whatever sellers are asking, you could always give it a few days a...

Re: New Elektron box

A bandmate of mine has a MNM and I've never really liked the sound of it; the Octatrack sounds fantastic. Elektron have had eight years more DSP programming experience since the Monomachine so I don't think this will sounds the same. Sounds promising! My money's on this being more like a Cirklon wi...

Re: New Elektron box

Like the world REALLY needs another 2VCO mono/polysynth..VA or no VA..there are too many on the market already. That depends. A feature rich VA or analog combined with kick a*s sequencer functions cleverly implemented into an intuitive box that's easy and fun to use is always something I'd consider...

Re: New Elektron box

The filters in the Octatrack sound great so if this is a VA/sequencer combo I'll be very happy. Looks cool. I guess a lot of people will be all over this thing for a while until it's the general consensus that it's brittle or aggressive in a bad way sounding, like the other stuff from electron is k...

Re: Ponies that can walk on their tail

Great thread!

My TI2 makes very cool dark, buzzy FM sounds. Fortunately it does a lot of other things too, as it's one expensive pony.. :)

Re: V-synth multimbrality, Waldorf Q and the VSE search func

Well I'm actually into psyish stuff myself and found some of those loops a bit inspiring :mrgreen: This project is perfect for me as, although I'll replace most of its content, it will help me figuring out how to make my own setups wiyh drums, basses and leads, all available at the same time. Many t...

Re: V-synth multimbrality, Waldorf Q and the VSE search func

Thanks for the explanation! I can upload a Vsynth project to depositfiles if you want to. Making these kind of programming for each one of the 512 patches is a loooong way.. That would be great! Even if I wanted to change it completely, it would probably be of great help against further confusion wi...

Re: V-synth multimbrality, Waldorf Q and the VSE search func

Hey balma, interesting way of using the V-synth! So by doing this your way I could use part 1 for main synth patch with arpeggio, effects and all, and part 2-16 for bass and drums routed to the direct output to prevent them from getting the effects from part 1? All these 16 parts could be on the sam...
